Maria Celia's story
María Celia is 31 years old. She is the mother of a child who studies in a community school. She is married, takes care of the house, and is a farmer who has been dedicated to growing coffee for more than 13 years, which she learned from her parents. She has an incomplete primary education, but thanks to the effort, moral and financial support of her parents she was able to study to third grade. In her home there are no other financial earnings which is why they depend on the coffee business which she and her husband engage themselves in, doing all the technical chores possible while her son is at school. The land that she and her husband work was obtained thanks to a purchase from her father and is located near the home they live in, and they walk back and forth each day. Her future plans are: as a mother of a family to continue supporting her child in his studies, giving him the opportunity to succeed and to learn through studying things that his parents can not teach him and knowledge that he can only learn in the classroom at school, and in regards to their crops, to achieve expansion so she can be the best farmer in the area so that she can cover the unmet demand that she currently has. So she is requesting funding so that she can buy agricultural supplies: 6 quintals of fertilizer, 3 quintals of ammonium nitrate, 3 quintals of potassium chloride, 4 packets of curatane, and a roll of hose so she can install an irrigation system for her potato crops.
